Brandon McCarthy has self-awareness rarely seen from a professional athlete.
While filling out a sheet with the instructions “Please write down some songs you would like to hear during batting practice,” McCarthy showed off his ever-present sense of humor. Some of the best “songs” he listed were “Kottonmouth Kings’ cover of Angel by Sarah McLachlan,” “Ying Yang Twins (DEEP TRACKS ONLY)” and “Happy Birthday – Sung by Lindsey Lohan impersonating Marilyn Monroe.”
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Diamondbacks' media relations reps, Patrick O'Connell and Casey Wilcox, recently handed out a lined sheet of paper to every player on the team with a very simple request: a list of songs to add to the stadium mix for during batting practice. Straightforward and innocuous enough, right?
Well, nothing is innocuous in the hands of pitcher Brandon McCarthy, who's known...
Monday’s first ever doubleheader at Chase Field has gotten that much more exciting. Tyler Skaggs will make his 2013 Diamondbacks debut in the first game of the doubleheader tomorrow.
Remember former Chicago White Sox hurler Brandon McCarthy. Who happens to be a pretty funny tweeter. Not just “funny for an athlete” or “humorous by celebrity standards,” but an actually funny guy. You can tell because even his public @replies and RTs are funny too.
But wait till you see his hot model wife. Amanda McCarthy is certainly someone you want to look at. Especially...
HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS
Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy was scratched from his Sunday start after injuring his finger while doing the dishes. Yes, really.
PHOENIX (AP) -- Brandon McCarthy pitched seven effective innings for his second straight win and Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run double to cap a five-run seventh inning, lifting the Diamondbacks to a 5-2 victory over the Padres on Friday night.
Arizona managed two hits over the first six innings against Eric Stults (4-4) before breaking it open in the seventh. Martin Prado had a...
PHOENIX -- As injuries go, it is not particularly threatening. The explanation probably hurt more. Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy suffered a small laceration on his right index finger when he cut it on a serrated knife blade while doing the dishes Thursday.
But it will force him to miss his scheduled start in the doubleheader against the Rangers on Monday -- the D-backs will...
PHOENIX -- The only team in the major leagues not to be shut out this season, the Diamondbacks waited until the seventh inning to extend that streak in a 5-2 victory over the Padres on Friday.
The way it unfolded, it was worth the wait.
Miguel Montero opened the five-run seventh inning with a double, and he scored one pitch later when Martin Prado grounded a doubled inside the...
PHOENIX -- It may be too early to bring it up, but what the heck. Halfway to the All-Star Game, Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin is as good a candidate as any to start for the National League. He has been that good.
Thats a no-brainer, catcher Miguel Montero said of an All-Star invitation.
Hes going to go. I know it is still a long way to go, but hes getting better.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have scratched right-handed
starting pitcher Ian Kennedy from today’s start due to a lacerated finger on
his throwing hand, pushing his next appearance back to Friday, according to
Tyler Emerick of MLB.com.
Kennedy suffered the injury while doing the dishes;
specifically while cleaning a knife.

Ever wondered who helps program the music at the stadium?
Thankfully for the Arizona Diamondbacks, they've got Brandon McCarthy to help out. When asked for suggestions, the righty responded with the following:
Jingle Bells - Bobcat Goldthwait does Christmas
Anything by John Philip Sousa
A six minute recording of Cahill breathing through...
Have the "Angels in the Outfield" relocated to the east?
The Arizona Diamondbacks are one of the surprises in baseball this season, sitting tied with the reigning World Series champion Giants atop the NL West at 28-22 after Sunday's 6-5 win over San Diego.
The product of a little divine intervention, perhaps? Well, once you see this photo, don't you have to at...
The D-Backs five-run seventh inning was the difference in the series opener. (@DBacks, Twitter)
For awhile, it appeared as if the struggles on offense in Colorado for the Arizona D-Backs had carried over into this game, but like a Phoenix, the Diamondbacks arose from the ashes. They defeated San Diego Padres 5-2 on Friday night.
The streak of consecutive scoreless innings ended for...
Heath Bell tried his little heart out to get to a very slow grounder hit by Will Venable on Friday night, but he fell a bot short. Check out the replay which made me laugh for a good few minutes straight. Good game, good effort.

The Padres continue to be a thorn in the side of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
One night after it appeared Arizona have exercised their demons, San Diego put a beat down on the Snakes, as they defeated Arizona 10-4 on Saturday night.

PHOENIX (AP) -- Tyler Skaggs, just called up from the minors, struck out nine in six scoreless innings and the Diamondbacks held on to beat the Rangers 5-3 in the opener of a doubleheader on Monday.
Skaggs (1-0), who lost out to Patrick Corbin for the fifth starting spot in the spring, was recalled from Triple-A Reno after scheduled starter Ian Kennedy cut his right index finger...
